If you are a Verizon customer now, there is a very good chance that you are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 4G LTE supported Motorola Droid Bionic, which is easily the most anticipated smartphone launch on Verizon yet since the Thunderbolt.
However, after our report last week which informed you about rival AT&T’s first 4G LTE data speed testings, you may be forgiven for being a bit worried now that the Motorola Droid Bionic will no longer be the hottest smartphone on the planet this year.
This is due to the fact that AT&T’s 4G LTE network may be able to churn out blistering ‘real-world’ speeds of up to 28.87 Mbps for downloads and 10.4 Mbps for uploads. Verizon on the other hand can only apparently handle 4G LTE speeds of up to 12Mbps downstream, so it is going to be very interesting indeed when AT&T showcase their very first 4G LTE handset which will be able to demonstrate these new speeds effectively.
So as you can see, the Droid BIonic may not be so special after all once it is released. If AT&T do manage to bring out a superior device with faster data speeds as well as the latest hardware specifications, would you consider moving to AT&T, or will you still be content with the Droid Bionic?
The ball is in AT&T’s court now it seems. Give us your thoughts on this.
